LINGuistic Ontology managEment System (LINGOES) is a framework to enable linguists to take full advantage of the Semantic Web technologies. Together with OntoGloss, a text annotation tool, and an RDF database with versioning and querying capabilities, it allows a linguist to markup any document with classes in one or more ontologies at the morpheme's level. Textual documents can be in any language as long as they are accessible via a URI (Universal Resource Identifier). The annotated data can be queried across these languages or can be used to annotate other documents. Saving the annotated data in an RDF repository with inference, querying and change management capabilities makes annotations in LINGOES accessible by machines and useful to the wider Semantic Web community.
